Fischer Soma Zephyr 110 (2012)
"CenteredÉresponsiveÉsnappyÉagile"—words used repeatedly to praise the Zephyr 110. Testers unanimously gave its light and lively feel their seal of approval and gushed about its smooth and comfy flex, which they judged to be on the soft side of its advertised 110 flex. Aptly named for its spritely attitude, cloud-like liner fit and sensitive snow feel, it might not suit Amazonian piste-pillagers. Notes: X-rail shell construction ties upper boot to rear two-thirds of lower via strong panels for immediate energy transfer to the ski, On/Off Piste mode rear spoiler design allows for quick fore-aft stance change from more forward to more upright, heat system ready cuff feature makes for easy racking of battery pack, dual eliptical cam canting provides easy lateral adjustment range, Rapid Slide system makes entry and exit super easy.
